This has been an exciting year. I have enjoyed being your Southwest District Director and look forward to another year representing our Southwest District. There have been lots of changes and more changes in the air for the coming year. I look forward to IAAP being recognized as the premier network and resource for the administrative profession.
Congratulations to the members who have earned Member of Excellence status for the 2012-2013 year. Thanks for your dedication.

Please take time to review the proposed Bylaws and Standing Rules along with the position papers for each proposed amendment. Also review the Strategic Plan 2013-2018 that came from the Futures Conference in March 2013.
Also if you were not able to participate in the Virtual Town Hall Meeting webinar on Thursday evening, go to the International Library and listen to the webinar. It is one hour long and free and should answer some of your questions that you might have in regards to the amendments.
Thank you for your support and a wonderful year as your SW District Director,
Michelle Spradley, CAP-OM
